First Class Return 14.00 Southwell 1 Pt Win @  Evens  (bog)

Much improved since going back up in trip and arrives on a hat-trick following back-to-back C&D wins last month. Handicapper has had his say, but this 8-y-o should prove hard to beat nonetheless.

Promising sort. Creditable second of 18 in novice hurdle (2/1) at Limerick (19f, heavy) 16 days ago. Sets a high standard and is open to further improvement, so should take the beating.

Gunnerside 17.20 Wolverhampton 1 Pt Win @ Evens (bog)

Winner at Newcastle in April. 11/10, good second of 12 in handicap at Kempton (7f) 6 days ago, doing too much too soon. Has to be taken seriously once again.

1st @ Evens & Non Runner

Queens Sargent 14.50 Catterick 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Back-to-back winner of 7f handicaps in July and plenty of good efforts in defeat thereafter. Far from disgraced when sixth of 20 on return at Doncaster (1m) in March and this rates more suitable.

Gran Luna 17.35 Chepstow 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

A good sort physically who won both her starts at Newbury 8 months apart, namely a bumper and a mares' novice hurdle. Disappointed after 4 months off at Market Rasen but retains potential up in trip. 

Cavalry Master 19.55 Kilbeggan 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Fairly useful 2m winner over hurdles. Best run over fences when second of 9 in minor event chase (7/4) at Down Royal (16.2f, heavy) 78 days ago. Not best of jumpers, but merits serious consideration.
